Hasselblad 500 EL (HEC) NASA Apollo Camera Set.

This Hasselblad 500 EL HEC camera set, #TRE12646, was produced for the Apollo Lunar missions, for the purpose of surveying the lunar surface in search of future landing sites. These cameras were heavily modified, by Hasselblad, for NASA. The leather coverings were removed and replaced by metal plates, the mirror, mirror mechanism and internal shutter were removed, the focusing screen was removed and replaced by a metal plate, the battery door was hinged, the charging port was changed and motor controls removed, the release button was enlarged for use with gloves and the lens knurling for the focusing ring, aperture ring and shutter ring was removed and replaced with a paddle for gloved use. The camera comes with a 200 exposure magazine, TR400224 and 80mm2.8 Planar lens, #4594718. All NASA marking are correct and the camera serial number is correct for this series. These typically came with a dark slide with an enlarged wire pull. This is missing from this camera. I will supply a standard dark slide. Also, one of the lens paddles is missing. This camera shows some expected light handling and edge wear. I rate it cosmetically at (9) condition. I believe that this camera is in good working order, but it has not been tested. I have been told that the space cameras were not lubricated for flight as the lubricants would not stay in their intended locations in the zero gravity environment. This is an amazing item that could be the centerpiece of your Hasselblad or NASA collection!
